The aim of this article was to present a clinical case of juvenile ossifying fibroma in a child involving the maxilla, spreading into the maxillary sinus, nasal cavity, ethmoid sinus, and the orbit. The tumor was removed with simultaneous reconstruction
of the maxillofacial defect using a vascularized fibular flap. The operation in the affected area was performed exclusively by intraoral access, which allowed to avoid face scarring. No tumor recurrence was detected during the 18 months of follow-up.
Key words: juvenile ossifying fibroma, resection of the upper jaw, defect reconstruction, free vascularized fibular flap, skull base, intraoral access, computed tomography, stereolithographic models, childhood, jaw tumor
